Default Keyless entry/Lights problem

The stats...
1992 Pontiac Bonneville se with the upgraded suspension package...(16in wheel and such)

Keyless entry no longer works. Rear cigarette lighter in the console no longer works. Lock buttons on the doors no longer work. Courtesy lights don't come on when door is opened. Power doesn't stay on after key is pulled and doors are kept closed. Used to say on ten minutes then go off.
All went away at the same time. I think what might have caused it.......back seat was packed and a box depressed the lighter and kept it compressed. Could this have blown a fuse or fried a wire?

I checked the drivers fuse box and they all look alright to me. I also looked at fuses under the hood but didn't see anything out of the ordinary.

What should my plan of attack be?

Default fuse

Your problem is better served in the everything electrical section. Sounds like a fuse or connection to me.

Moving to electrical...

Sounds as if there may be a blown fuse.. Do the interior lights come on at all when you open the door? And did you check the fuses on the passenger side ?

No lights at all... Hmmm.. Interesting.. Do check the fuses under the passenger side hush panel... And see if any of them are bad
